Stamp School GDT

Happy Tuesday! Anyone still reading? LOL!

I've been asked to be a Guest Design Team for Stamp School this month. Woo hoo! Stamp School is a newer  stamp company that is owned by the owner of my LSS, A Walk Down Memory Lane. The photopolymer stamps are fantastic--they stamp beautifully!

In June, Stamp School is releasing two wedding sets. I'll be showing sneak peek cards for the next three days. Here's what I came up with:

Happily Ever After

I started off with patterned paper and dry-brushed over it in watered-down white paint. I stamped over the whitewash. The dress is paper-pieced and I added some pearls like a wedding dress (although my own wedding dress didn't have a single embellishment--I was CAS even in my wedding). Here's a close-up:

I finished off the card by inking the edges and sewing a border. I actually managed to sew a straight line--yeah!

The stamps will be released on Friday. Stamp School also carries heavyweight cardstock and matching inks and wool felt. I'll be showing more this week! Thanks for looking!

Stamps: (dress from Down the Aisle, sentiment from Wedded Bliss) Stamp School (will be released 6/1)
Cardstock: (Sweet Tooth) Stamp School; (charcoal grey) Bazzill
Patterned Paper: (Miss Caroline collection) My Mind's Eye
Dye Inks: (Tuxedo Black) Memento
Distress Inks: (Antique Linen, Worn Lipstick) Ranger
Pearls and paint are from my stash.
